Florida man on a very impressive crime spree managed to steal different vehicles
A Florida man stole at least four vehicles and caused various property damage in what was dubbed an “impressive crime spree” by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office. The incident that took place on Tuesday was enough to astonish even the deputy sheriffs.
Sheriff’s deputies at the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office received an accident report Tuesday morning. They set off for the alleged crash on Highway 17 near Palmetto. When they reached the so-called Pierson area, they found a stolen Ford F-150 stuck in mud up to the tailgate.
There was no one inside the Ford F-150 truck. Sheriff’s deputies determined that the vehicle in question had been stolen from Marion County. As sheriff’s deputies investigated the abandoned truck, eyewitnesses reported another case. Someone was breaking into two different buildings and stealing another Ford F-150 and forklift.
According to the information obtained from the arrest reports, the forklift was used until it ran out of gas and then left. The suspect then stole the Ford F-150 and drove away into the forest. When the sheriff’s deputies found the vehicle, they found that the catalytic converter had been removed from the vehicle.
Continuing their investigation, sheriff’s deputies suddenly received a tip about a theft and stolen car. Victims said he stole their car keys and a pair of shoes from the house where the thief entered. But that wasn’t the only thing the thief stole. He also stole the car in the garage.
Continuing to gather information about the events, the sheriff’s deputies received a theft report that a four-wheeler had been stolen. According to the eyewitness who saw the incident, the family that owned the four wheeler was in the hospital due to coronavirus. They asked their daughter, who was the eye-witness, to take care of the house.
When another property owner called the sheriff’s deputies, he said he could hear the sound of the four-wheeler while he was tending his garden. According to the arrest report, the owner began tracking the ruts and encountered a man who asked if he could drink water from the fountains.
The owner told the man that he should not drink from the fountains because the waters flowing there were poisonous. Then, the suspiciously behaving man suddenly ran away. Then deputies later met Charles Harrington on County Road 3.
All of Harrington’s thefts took place within 18 hours. “To be clear, this is a very rural area and not much has been heard of in this area,” the deputy sheriff who arrested Harrington said in his report. The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office has videotaped the capture of the thief and one of the Ford trucks stuck in the mud.
When he was stopped by a deputy sheriff with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, Harrington said he was swimming with his girlfriend. He stated that he knocked on someone’s door in the area and asked for some water, but other than that he did nothing. The deputy sheriff stated that they were aware of everything that was going on.
According to the report, keys belonging to one of theF-150s and the lanyard linked to another theft were found in Harrington’s pocket. The catalytic converter, which was previously removed from the truck, was found in the abandoned four-wheeler.
One of the sheriff’s deputies handcuffed him. After the investigation, it was learned that Harrington had another search warrant outside of Marion County. Harrington is charged with three counts of unarmed theft and three other grand thefts under $100,000.
